1/25 ZST. 19/SWAT! - Fights Announced

Thursday 15 January 2009

ZST is holding a double header in Shinjuku Face on January 25. The first event starts at 13.00, and is the "SWAT! in FACE vol. 2" event. The main card is the ZST. 19 event, which starts at 17.00 in the same arena.

Today they have added fights to both these cards, but keep you eyes on a grappling match on the SWAT! card. Hiroshi Tsuruya (who happens to be my BJJ instructor), is taking on Ichiro Kojima. The card also includes 2 tournament finals, in the fly- and welterweight Genesis tournament.

The main-card includes a welterweight title fight between Osami Shibuya and the very popular Masayuki Okude. Another interesting fight to keep an eye on is the fight between Shinichi Shimizu and Takeaki Miyakawa. Miyakawa is on a 4 fight winning streak and Shimizu lost his last fight by KO. Shimizu will be looking to come back with a win here, and he is very efficient in finishing fights. It should be a good battle.

P.S. You have to buy ticket for each of these events separately.
